Yahoo tried to slow Microsoft search rollout: filing

Yahoo Inc Chief Executive Marissa Mayer tried to slow the rollout of its search deal with Microsoft Corp and questioned its partner's commitment, court filings show, in the latest sign that their strategic relationship is fraying.

A U.S. judge ruled on Monday that Yahoo must adopt Microsoft's search technology in Taiwan and Hong Kong under their partnership, forged in 2010, to try and lessen Google Inc's dominance in search advertising.

Very interesting. If true, this will have delayed for three years any hope of reducing Google's dominance in those markets.

Google's dominance in those markets


Google is not dominant in those markets. That's the brainwash talking to you. ;)

Yahoo is the leading search engine in Hong Kong and Taiwan. Baidu is the leader in mainland China.

Wrong. Google is very dominant in those markets via its Android OS.
